Its the end of the world as we know it and where are Chris Brown and Justin Bieber? Well if they have anything to say about it, right “Next 2 You.” Or at least that’s the theme of the music video to their song with that title. “Next 2 You” is the latest music video from Chris Brown’s current album, F.A.M.E. For the video Chris enlisted the talents of his frequent collaborator, director, Colin Tilley. This was a good choice because not only has Colin worked with Chris on nearly every one of his recent videos, but he also directed Justin’s videos for “U Smile” and “Never Let You Go”, from My World 2.0.
The song was originally released as a digital single to help promote F.A.M.E. after the album’s lead single, “Yeah 3X.” It was co-written by Chris Brown, The production group, The Messangers and Amber “Seven” Streeter of Richgirl. Amber also performed on Brown’s Michael Jackson inspired, “She Ain’t You” single and video. Due to the popularity of the F.A.M.E. album, “Next 2 You” already cracked the top 40 in the US Billboard and Canadian Hot 100 charts.
It appears that everytime Chris and Colin have worked together each production gets a little bigger for each video. Well in the case of the video for “Next 2 You”, Big is the only work that can describe the blockbuster film look to this video. The concept of the music video is simple. It is the end of the world, and all Chris Brown and Justin Bieber want to to do is get back to the women they love. While the idea is a simple one that has been used in many Hollywood action films, the look and feel of the video with its detail take it way beyond just a music video.
It was filmed at the Universal Studios in Los Angele, the same location of Brown’s “Yeah 3X” video. it features actress Shannon Elizebeth who played Chris Brown’s love interest. In the video Brown’s girlfriend leaves his apartment, as he watches a car blowing up, and rushes out to find his girlfriend, but then, he also feels a heavy tremble in their apartment as things begin to fall and crumble . In, Bieber’s role in the video, he gives his girlfriend a necklace, as well when shortly after her father takes her away, forbidding her from ever seeing Bieber . The video then shows a dark storm and earthquake hitting the streets of New York, as both Brown and Bieber perform their verses. Brown’s girlfriend is hit by a car, upon his arrival to the city, he makes a dramatic jump to save her, and Bieber’s girlfriend runs away from her controling father with hopes to find Bieber. In the end, Bieber and his girlfriend kiss, but Chris Brown walks away from the city alone.It really is a must see video!
